I think it is a great unit for a first time hunter. There is good access with terrain that has everything from rolling oaks to steep canyons. A 4x4 is helpful and an ATV or UTV provides additional access to jeep trails in the area. According to the Wildlife Area Manager last year was a little more challenging due to the drought conditions. The only negative from my perspective is that the hunt is only 2 days. That being said, I saw 12 different legal bucks in 2 days of scouting and 1 day of hunting.
